Message from President Jordan
This morning, after a very long period of wallowing in the trump dumps I woke up happy and took my temperature. I was shocked to find that today I AM INSPIRED!
Today some amazing ETHS students will participate in the Global Climate Strike. If you miss(ed) this one I am told they will likely have a similar event to mark Climate Action Day.
Many of those same students are the very same young leaders who are doing other amazing things right here in Evanston. ETHS Student leaders made last year’s event with survivors from Parkland, Florida,The Student Movement Against Gun Violence Forum a powerful event. Read about it here.
This year student leaders are addressing hate speech at an event at ETHS featuring them along with national leaders from the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Illinois Holocaust Museum. The event is on October 10th, come be a part of Responding to Political hate Speech in the US.
Young people in America are getting involved in record numbers. They have shown us that all it takes to make meaningful change is to have an idea and couple it with determination and willpower. They are doing this at the local level and it is trickling up and becoming a national movement!
Please sign up and attend this year’s student led event, you will be inspired and your support means that we can show these student leaders that we support them. The proceeds from the event will help fund our Emerging Leader Scholarship.
Also in October, at our annual awards dinner we will honor Robyn Gabel with the Yellow Dog award, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi will receive the Mikva award, Gerri Sizemore will receive the Tisdahl award and Greg Andrus will get the Loda. Join us!
